I find this to be the most touching, poignant and wonderful card of them all.
The front of the pink card has a raised part that says “my story” with some pink mini beads above and below it. Then there’s a pink breast cancer ribbon below that. Below the ribbon it says, “I’m a survivor” on another raised piece of paper held in place by a pink “gem”. When you open this card, it reads:
Hi Wild Pink Yonder,
My name is Tash and I am 41 years old. I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer September 13, 2012; a day that changed my life forever. It’s been a crazy year having two breast surgeries, removal of lymph nodes, chemotherapy and radiation. But through it all, the community support has been amazing! Family and friends were wonderful. Just knowing I could call on them for anything.
The community has really come together making our town pink. We’ve had a lot of fun fundraising, decorating bras and making pink crafts with kids. Thank you so much, Wild Pink Yonder, for choosing Wembley to be part of the cure. It is amazing how much money you have raised so far! Hopefully one day my two daughters won’t have to worry about breast cancer.
Keep up the trot for a cure!
Yep … we’ll be on the trail to a cure in August this year … and for as many years as it takes. Won’t you come with us?
